This Nashville Prime Time interview (Merle Haggard, Bob Eubanks, George Jones, friends and musicians) is a real 'mind blower'

MERLE HAGGARD PERFORMS (LIVE) - TRIBUTE SHOW by PRIME TIME COUNTRY

Didn't know the Bob Eubanks/Merle Haggard connection (25 years), the stories about performing for Nixon at the White House on the eve of Watergate break-in and writing 'Sing Me Back Home' for death row inmate 'Jimmy Hendricks' are amazing. And then there's Bonnie Owens and "The Possum".

Thank you Merle Haggard for your life in music.
